                One server is not adequate. My $39 steak was tough and had no taste. Our guests wine was unsatisfactory. I’ll give it a fourth try and if it fails, adios.

                Possibly the better upscale dining menu in the area. Somewhat understaffed in the wait and kitchen likely due pandemic. Will certainly go back again as I’m sure they will get it together sooner rather than later.

                We enjoyed a lovely evening with friends at C’est la Vie. The server was very knowledgeable and helped us with the selection of delicious appetizers and entrees. It was a great dining experience and we plan to return again soon.

                So glad we finally tried the fine dining side of C’est La Vie - great for a date night close to home in Big Canoe. We are lucky to have such a high end dining option.

                When the restaurant opened about six months ago, there were some "opening day jitters". Each subsequent visit has shown improvement, to a level where I can easily recommend them. Our most recent visit was outstanding, capped by some of the best oysters on the half shell that I have had in recent years. We'll be back!

                The music from the casual side was very good, but I feel too loud for the dining area. Really like your restaurant. It's a wonderful addition to the area!

                I absolutely love this restaurant! I’ve been there several times for lunch. Best sandwiches ever! I have been there two times for dinner. Each meal was superb! All in our party agreed and we all look forward to returning. Like all restaurants today, they are suffering from lack of more wait staff. Clark is amazing, and very attentive. I don’t know how he does it, but it is most appreciated. The menu now changes every two weeks. I think I will have to go there even more often now.

                A refreshing addition to an area lacking in choices of restaurants. They have a formal dinning side and a bar style casual side which has an amazing jazz band on Tuesdays.

                The food at C’est la Vie is always very good and the service is fully competent. Unfortunately we waited a long time for food and we didn’t get updated at all in the process. That being said the food was excellent when it came. We will continue to return.

                Great meal. Though their was delay in-service, Leticia was very apologetic and explained the reason why, which was acceptable to all of us. It was worth the wait. The rack of lamb, with the vegetable medley, the sea bass, and the hot goat cheese salad were incredible. Both Laetitia and Vincent work hard not only to make excellent dishes, but also to provide personal and caring service.

                As always, the food was great. Only two waiters for the room, but they did well. They took orders, made our drinks, cleared tables, brought our food, and answered questions. It is so hard to find staff these days so they did well under the circumstances. We will continue to support this small business.

                We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. It certainly was a great improvement from our initial visit and subsequent visit to the restaurant. Clark, our server I was very attentive, professional, and patient. Both the fish dish that my wife enjoyed and they lamb Shank that I ordered were excellent. Plan to go back soon. Kudos to Felicia and Vincent.

                Clearly understaffed which was understandable. They did their best. Food was surprisingly mediocre given the reputation and buzz for the new restaurant. Ambiance was disappointing. Loud kitchen nearby. Bright lights were too much.

                Although the food was pretty good, the service was strained. I felt for the waiters as they were swamped and i think uprepared for the onslaught of customers. I hope to revisit and find a more fully staffed restaurant.

                Our second visit to the Fine Dining side, food and service were very good. Only thing that could have made it better was an acknowledgement of our Anniversary that we were celebrating that evening.

                The food was delicious, but our waiter needed more training. He was pleasant, but didn’t even know how to uncork our bottle of Prosecco.

                Our steak was cooked perfectly. We will be dining here again.
